Wired PC does not See Laptop

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Michael Knight, Mar 6, 2005.

  1. I can't seem to search and find a solution to my problem.

    I have a DSL modem connected to a Belkin Wireless G router.

    I created a wireless network on my laptop (Winxp Home) using the CD enclosed
    with the router.

    I then plugged my PC (Winxp Home) to the router via Ethernet cable. I then
    went through the wizard to add it to the network.

    Now, both computers are able to surf the internet. My laptop can print to
    the printer connected to the PC. My laptop can see Shared Files on the PC.

    My PC cannot see the laptop at all. On the PC, if I go to My Network
    Places\Microsoft Windows Network, I get "Unable to browse the network. The
    network is not present or not started."

    How do I get my PC to see the laptop on the wireless network? I really need
    specific step-by-step instructions since I'm new to this.

    Thanks in advance,
    Mike

    It sounds as though you may have a firewall on your laptop that is blocking
    the connection.
